A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as main course.

Method

  1. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (about 20 min).
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet or saucepan. Sauté the shallot 2-3 min, until it becomes translucent. Add the rice then cook 1-2 min, with constant stirring, until the rice grains are well toasted and translucent. Add the parsley and garlic base, tomato paste and peas.
  3. Cook the risotto, using the warmed broth until the rice is creamy but still al dente.
  4. Meanwhile, shell the cooked crab meat, using a nutcracker and scissors. Add the crab meat to the risotto at the vary last minute to warm it up. Stir in the cheese.
  5. Remove the risotto pan from the heat and let stand for 2 min. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
